Publisher's Summary

It's a job that makes a killing. Efficient, professional, and without apology, Lily Mansfield is a hired assassin, working as a contract agent for the CIA. Her targets are the powerful and corrupt, those who can't be touched by the law. Now, after 18 years of service, Lily has been drawn into a dangerous game that hasn't been sanctioned, seeking vengeance for her own reasons. Each move bolder than the next, she is compromising her superiors, drawing unwanted attention and endangering her very life. Though stress and shock have made her feel somewhat invincible and a little cocky, Lily knows that she too can be taken out in an instant. And if it's her time, so be it. She intends to go down fighting.
A CIA agent himself, Lucas Swain recognizes the signs of trauma in the line of fire. His orders are to either bring her in or bring her down. Yet he too is drawn into the game with Lily Mansfield, dancing on a tightrope as he tries to avoid a major international incident while still battling a tenacious foe who is dogging their every step.
Keeping laser focus on her task at hand while vigilantly watching her back, Mansfield never sees the lethal peril that lies directly in her path...and how loyalty has a price.

Loved it!

I agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer -- this is the best I've ever heard using two narrators. Joyce Bean's voice has a very pleasant tone and she does accents beautifully. Dick Hill's narration takes a little bit of getting used to because of his delivery style, but he also has a very pleasant voice and very clear enunciation. When reading 'in character', they are both amazing -- conversations between them flow easily with all of the nuances of the characters' personalities.

The only thing I thought was a bit unexpected about this story was the lack of tension. I was surprised at how easily the two main characters trusted each other and other people with no background information at all. I was also surprised at how often that worked out just fine -- with the CIA and all of those bad guys I expected a few more double crosses. Personally, I prefer this style so I was very pleased with the story.

And you REALLY don't want to miss those love scenes!

The fact that Dick Hill and Joyce Bean both narrated this book made it so very much more enjoyable for me. I have read it and listened to it and it was most certainly worth my credit. This is a definite keeper and you won't be disappointed! It's about time two narrators got together. I'll be looking for more books like this.
